    Common outputs for the mix board are ¼-inch phone jack plugs for the output to an amp, and a pair of RCA phono plugs (L/R) for a line-out to a recording deck. Pro audio amps can also have ¼-inch phone plugs for input. Home audio usually has RCA plugs for input on the amp. If your equipment is common, you will need a cable that is ¼-inch phone jack at one end to connect to the mixer, and an RCA phono jack on the other end to connect to the amp. You will need one cable for each channel (L and R).

    Phone-to-phono (and phono-to-phone) adapters are common. You may be able to use the cables you have and just get a couple ¼-inch phone-to-phono adapters and be good to go.

    That’s my best guess without seeing your equipment.

    That was helpful! :)

    Your amp’s input is definitely a ¼-inch phone plug. No! That is not the cable you need.

    See this: http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=9997&1&source=14&doy=21m5

    You probably have a ¼-inch hole for the mixer’s output, the same as the ¼-inch hole for the amp’s input. If so, that link is for the cables you need. You need one patch cable for each channel, L/R.

    Good luck! :smashin:

    Line out on a small mixer is often regular old RCA phono jacks. You could go with a couple of those adapters the seller recommended (one for each channel) and plug them into your amp, then use a common RCA phono interconnect cable for each channel to go from there to the mixer.

    Or, you can use the cable I suggested earlier to plug into the amp, and the other end would plug into this adapter, and that into your mixer:

    If it’s just a one-time thing, go for whichever is all around less expensive for the adapters and interconnect cables. If this is something you will being using for a number of years, I’d suggest going with the cables I recommended because they will have more uses with pro-audio equipment in general.

    If you want to keep looking on your side of the pond, there are interconnect cables available that are ¼-inch phone (male) on one end for your amp, and a phono (male) on the other end for your mixer, no adapter needed. Something like this:
